Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– When Will Woojer Have More Straps… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere in between being down the front at a gig and standing beside a bass bin in a club, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a manner you can’t quickly replicate. If you’re a fan of classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, but if your taste skews towards the much heavier end you’ll discover it difficult to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your headphones in series before depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too lots of loose cables, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the method, and nor did it limit my movement.
If you have actually checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and enjoying hits in VR can be quite special. Including in the Vest Edge ideas things securely into ‘almost as excellent as the real thing’.
I chose Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things began reasonably controlled. I don’t think I ‘d invested much time thinking of how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding major depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I liked this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, just like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
